Safety Antonio Conner (Batesville, Miss./South Panola), the No. 1 player in Mississippi and No. 24 prospect in the ESPN 150, signed with Ole Miss on Wednesday. He picked the Rebels over Alabama and Mississippi State, continuing Ole Miss' signing-day run of success that included its landing earlier of No. 1 overall prospect Robert Nkemdiche and No. 1 offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil.
"It's right down the road," Conner said in an interview on ESPNU. "I feel more comfortable playing in my home state. I want to do something to put Mississippi on the map."
